Will Contests

Probate Accounts

Will Contests

  • Do you believe a loved one’s will was fraudulently drafted or executed?
  • Is the estate in question under attack by false claims?
  • Do you have other grounds to challenge a will?

If so, then I would invite you to contact me.

In Massachusetts, a will can be challenged on many grounds, including lack of competency (or “testamentary capacity”), undue influence, and fraud. I represent clients in will contests and help protect their interests, and those of their family.

Improper or Negligent Estate Administration

Estate personal representatives have a fiduciary duty to administer an estate in accordance with a will (or intestate law if there is no will) for the benefit of heirs or beneficiaries.  Sometimes personal representatives act wrongly for their own benefit by seeking to misappropriate estate assets.  Personal representatives may also fail to act in a prudent and professional manner.  In either case, if action is not taken quickly, the estate can be depleted.

Additionally, a personal representative may come under attack by those seeking to wrongly gain access to estate assets.

I represent clients seeking to bring claims for wrongful estate administration, and estate personal representatives wrongfully attacked or sued by those seeking unjust enrichment.
